Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

These are the weekends we live for as college football fans. The drama off the field this week, however, was just as good as on the field thanks to Jameis Winston. This week showed a lot of top teams struggling for the victory while others took care of business. Let’s get into the Top-25 action from this weekend. 1. Winston needs …

Oregon’s No. 2 Ranking … and What It Means For Recruiting

Jason Fowler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 2 Comments

It’s still too early in the college football season to know the future of the Ducks, but all the same, it’s exciting they have a chance to be in the top four reaching the playoffs each week. But for Oregon, that isn’t the only thing to look forward to, and the increasingly positive rankings could have even better side-effects. This …

  Media days are upon us. Of course, if you look at the news feed you will think that the SEC is the only conference to have one of them. Media day is the chance for coaches and players to answer a few questions and give fans something to look forward to in the fall. Sometimes you might even get a …

  With the NCAA trial all finished up and media days about to begin, the news was a little slow this week. The news in the college football world might be slow but it is never dull. It will really pick up when you put a bunch of coaches and players in front on a microphone for media day. Great news …

If you are a soccer fan then you are just about in heaven right now. You will have your next couple weeks occupied and not realize all the college football action is happening in court rooms and police reports. I will put in my two cents about the World Cup and the NBA playoffs since that is really all there …

  We might not have football games to enjoy,  but get ready to tune into the court room as your new gridiron this week. O’Bannon v NCAA begins this coming week and is about to shake up college sports as we have never seen before. Andy Staples was kind enough to go over the Fact vs Fiction about the lawsuit …

College Football Nation: FSU has Crabs and SEC Schedules

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

  Anyone hungry for seafood?  If so head on over to Tallahassee.  I hear they are just “giving” it away.  On top of that fun story you have Nick Saban actually being happy with Lane Kiffin, the SEC setting forth a better way of scheduling, and some beef with how things are going to be done with the college football …

College Football Nation: SEC Rules and SEC! SEC! SEC!

First off, it has been a busy week for me.  Not so much with National Signing Day (NSD) and paying attention to recruiting but more on the family aspect.  My wife and I welcomed our 2nd child on February 1st.  I know she will be a great child because she was born before the Super Bowl, allowing me to not …

College Football Nation: Duke does it again and Oregon is back in it

  College football was fun today.  There were so many entertaining games on all at once I don’t think I kept the TV on the same channel for more than a few minutes at a time.  We had the exciting finish down at Auburn, while their rivals Alabama did not look like the N0. 1 team in the nation.  FSU …

College Football Nation: Ducks Quacked and Tide Keep Rolling

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

  I was starting to get worried about too many undefeated teams finishing perfect.  Thanks to Stanford we had Oregon drop from the list of unbeaten.  We still have Ohio State and Northern Illinois unbeaten thanks to their bye week coming at a convenient time . . . but do those teams really matter right now?  Alabama keeps doing what …

College Football Nation: FSU Scalps Clemson and SEC in Mutiny

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 8 Comments

  This could be the best Saturday we have had in college football this season.  The upset bug was at work all around the country.  We are really starting to see who are the contenders (Alabama, Oregon, FSU) and the pretenders (Clemson, Georgia, LSU).  Team stocks are rising for the contenders and falling for the others.  We had teams in …

College Football Nation: Top Team Escapes With Win; Playoff Committee Forming

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 6 Comments

  “When Offenses Attack” was the theme of the day.  It seems that as the season goes on we are seeing more and more teams put up massive numbers of yardage and points.  You have Baylor and Oregon averaging more than 50 points a game, easy.  Clemson and FSU just dominate whoever lines up in front of them.  Ohio State and Texas …
